    Toddler 'stamped to death by parents'

    Toddler 'stamped to death by parents' had only eaten a yoghurt, a chocolate biscuit and some Quavers all day

    A TODDLER whose mother and step-father are accused of stamping her to death had only eaten a yoghurt, a chocolate biscuit and a packet of Quavers on the day she died, a court was told today.

    Ayeeshia Jane Smith, aged 21 months, was "very thin" with her weight in the bottom 2 per cent for her age.

    She was heard shouting "Stop Mummy, stop Daddy" shortly before she suffered a fatal laceration to the heart thought to have been caused by a forceful foot stamp to her chest, jurors have heard.

    Kathryn Smith, 23, and her ex-partner Matthew Rigby, 22, are accused of murdering Ayeeshia, causing or allowing her death and child cruelty.

    The child's mother told police Ayeeshia had "snacked on a yoghurt, a chocolate biscuit, and Quavers" by the time Smith called an ambulance at 4pm on May 1, 2014, Birmingham Crown Court heard.

    Detective Sergeant James Brady, who spoke to Smith at hospital hours after the child's death, told the jury: "I was told she had her last meal the night before at Matthew's grandparents' house in Nottingham."

    Recalling a conversation at Queen's Hospital in Burton-upon-Trent, Mr Brady said Smith told him Ayeeshia had suffered three "over-heating fits" since the start of 2014, and on two of those occasions an ambulance had been called to the family home in Burton.

    He described the couple as being "extremely emotional" at the time.

    Smith then told the officer of an incident three weeks before when the little girl had to be taken to hospital.

    Mr Brady told the court: "Mum had told me that the child had bitten her lip in bath approximately three weeks prior (to the death).

    "She had slipped in the bath and consequently she was taken to Queen's Hospital and then sent home."

    On the day of the child's death, the officer said Smith told him she had left Ayeeshia on the potty and went to the kitchen, while 22-year-old Rigby was outside in the garden.

    Mr Brady said: "Mum went into the kitchen to get some juice and returning back then found the child with blue lips, and fitting."

    He was asked by Christopher Hotten QC, prosecuting, if Smith had presented the fits as being similar to those the child had suffered previously.

    The detective replied: "Yes, it was described as the same as before, implying it was the same as the previous fits."

    Earlier the jury heard Ayeeshia was weighed and found to be in the second percentile for a child of her age with a medical expert describing her as "thin".

    Dr Tamas Marton, a consultant paediatric pathologist, said: "Ayeeshia was a thin child."

    He added: "Out of 100 children, 98 would be heavier for children of the same age and build."

    A post-mortem found the toddler had suffered a bleed on the brain in the months before her death, linked to an incident in which Ayeeshia was hospitalised after collapsing in February 2014.

    Further injuries were also discovered including a large bruise to her back and buttocks, bruising to her neck, head, left eyelid and left leg.

    Jurors have previously heard the toddler was taken into care by social services in May 2013 following concerns for her welfare, but had been returned to her mother's care in October that year.

    Smith and Rigby deny all the charges. The trial continues.

    Regrettable that whatever agency is charged with protecting children in Britain missed this case, it appears the abuse was on-going for a long time.

    Yes....they are most likely sick : mentally ill.

    It has been estimated that about 40% of people in Australian prisons are. Suppose it's the same overseas.

    On the day things like this do not make the news because people are bored with them, the world has truly gone to hell in a handbasket.

    Now do us all a favour Cujo and FUCK OFF.

    Stop trying to whore your way into a mod job.

    Whether you have a point or not is not the point, is it? People get het up about some topics and want to post and emote about them, for all sorts of reasons. It takes a lot less energy to just ignore the threads that make you roll your eyes, dunnit?

    The question still hasn't been answered Kurgen.
    Of all the world news items that day, why choose this particularly grotesque one?

    It seems bizarre quite frankly. (to me at least)

    There is no limitation on posting World News and for damned sure you don't get to pick what gets posted here.

    So why don't you mind your own fucking business, you sanctimonious curtain twitcher.

    You're not a mod so stop trying to pretend you are.

    Gosh, on a thread about a child beaten to death by her parents. You lot still have to argue and prattle on about your own silly forum arguments.

    That is sad.

    RIP little girl.

    Nothing to do with you. Now be a good boy and just fuck off will you.
    He posted the link, which is mandatory in this thread.

    Now you know the rules, STFU.

    Murder-accused mum 'didn't feed baby daughter for week before stamping death'

    A MOTHER accused of stamping her toddler daughter to death with her former partner had not fed the tragic tot for a WEEK before she died, a court heard today.

    Kathryn Smith, 23, and Matthew Rigby, 22, are accused of murdering 21-month-old Ayeeshia Jane Smith at Smith’s home in Stretton, Burton-upon-Trent, Staffs, on May 1, 2014.

    Birmingham Crown Court heard Smith had texted her parents two days before Ayeeshia died saying she had not been able to afford to feed her.

    She told them: “I just want the money I’m owed. AJ’s hungry. I’m going to get the f***ing bus down. If you’re not there I’ll blow your down off. I’m doing the dog as well.”

    In a text to her mother, she said: “AJ's sat in her room crying because she’s been hungry and for over a week I’ve not been able to feed her.”

    Days earlier she had texted Rigby and the pair had discussed buying cannabis because they were “running low” and only had “like ten grams left”.

    The court heard another text was sent to Smith from Ayeeshia’s social worker Steven Crean just one hour before the tragic tot’s death, asking to see them the following day.

    Ayeeshia died from a rip to her heart that was caused by a powerful foot stamp or from being violently shaken which triggered a fatal cardiac arrest.

    Medical experts said Ayeeshia, who also bit through her own tongue, was so badly injured she resembled a “car crash victim”.

    The pair, who deny murdering the girl, had an on-off relationship in the months before Ayeeshia’s death.

    After Smith reported Rigby for domestic violence on April 4, 2014, she texted Rigby to say her social worker had been round and she was “in trouble”, the jury heard.

    She said: “If there's no injuries, there’s no evidence. It’s your word against theirs.”

    Rigby replied: “Ok, well it couldn’t be helped. You rang because you had no choice. I’m not exactly going to be there, so f*** it.”

    Smith texted back: “Got to go back on courses now to keep AJ. It’s been stated as acute domestic.”

    Later that month the couple argued again and Rigby texted her: “Don’t be beating the dog, it’s not his fault you’re in a mood.”

    Smith replied: “I told you it’s when you shout at me. I just want you to be happy and you shout all the time.

    “I can't help the fact you forgot to pick the weed up. You didn’t mention anything to me. That wasn’t my fault.

    “The dog’s going. He doesn’t listen to me, only you.”

    The court also heard Smith had split up from Ayeeshia’s father, Ricky Booth, 21, more than a year earlier.

    The trial will resume on Monday when Smith, who was not in court today due to illness, is due to give evidence.
